Holiday Season Recharge

Holiday Season Recharge

How are you feeling today? We’re still in the midst of the holiday season and if you’re like many of us, your typical routines have receded in the rearview.

Don’t feel guilty if you’ve abandoned your usual healthy workout routine or eaten a few dozen frosted sugar cookies washed down with crisp champagne. Life is meant to be savored, enjoyed, and lived in the present moment. Sometimes this might be the only chance you’ve got to spend time with family, see old friends, or simply hibernate. 

But if you’ve abandoned your usual exercise, yoga, and diet, you may be feeling lethargic and heavier than usual. When your body feels bloated, your mind and emotions can also feel slower and foggier. To counteract these weighty tamasic sensations, see if you can carve out some time to recharge your body’s natural cleansing powers. What do you need in this moment to feel more like yourself until you return to your habitual routine?

If you’re feeling stressed out, which is common at this time of year, you can shift your energy in one of two ways. A vigorous practice will help you sweat out the toxins and stimulate your mind if you’re feeling lazy or unmotivated to do more than lounge on the couch with the remote control. Check out classes from Ben, Becca, and Carson to stimulate your digestive, lymphatic, and circulatory systems and quiet anxious thoughts. You’ll boost your energy, improve your sleep, and finish out the season feeling clear and calm. 

If the idea of a dynamic sweaty class doesn’t work for you and you haven’t taken the time to slow down all month, try Elise’s chill class to soothe your nervous system. Allow yourself to reset and relax. Even if you know you won’t be settling back into your regular routine for another week or two, choose to step away and take some time for self-care. So go ahead, hit the reset button! You’ll find more energy and be able to finish out the year and decade strong!
